Our Promise

Horst Hardwood Services is a family owned and operated flooring contractor in Pittsburgh, specializing in hardwood floor refinishing. We use a double HEPA filtration system for dustless sanding. Our standard products of choice are high-quality, next-generation water-based polyurethane made from whey protein. They are at least as durable as oil-based products, but nicer to your family and the environment. We offer restoration of old floors, board replacement, scratch removal, carpet removal, new hardwood floor installation, and floor repair. We do not use sub-contractors.


We know wood, from how it reacts to finishes to the variations in tannins from one species to another. We understand not only the how but also the why of the way wood responds to sanding and finishing. Whether you're considering the outcome of the oxidation of pine over a 100 years or the moisture content of wood to install, we have the answers.​We know that home improvement can be a major endeavor and we strive to make your floor re-finishing project as painless as possible. We go the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied. 

"Todd was the best bid, outstanding work and he was really, really accommodating. This process could have really inconvenienced us, but it didn't really. The floors are beautiful in my 70 year old house." - Emma R.

"I highly recommend Todd. He recently refinished the hardwood floors throughout our home, and the result was beautiful. He was very friendly, professional, and honest. After searching tirelessly for the right person to do the job, I'm glad we found Todd!" - Lauren H.

"​​Todd does fantastic work. Our 90-year-old oak and pine floors in our recently-purchased home had been under carpet for 40+ years and had even been painted over at one point. He cleaned them up, sanded them down, stained them a fantastic color, and finished them with several satin polyurethane coats. The grain came out in amazing ways and the floors look fantastic. They're the best part of the house." - Theo C.

"From beginning to end Horst Hardwood was prompt, professional, cleanly, and did incredible work. The hardwood floors in my home were original from 1935 and he restored them to look brand new! Very reasonable pricing. I highly recommend them for any restoration job in the Pittsburgh area." - Christen B.

​"We would highly recommend Todd! He did an amazing job, which included the installation of new hardwood floors on our first floor in addition to refinishing our existing ones, and made them all flow seamlessly. We are so happy with the results!" - Leanne T.
